Of the 80+ shows I've attended, this evening scores the highest on the quality of the performance live with an excellent translation to disc. The reviewers prior to me have highlighted the center of the evening in Set 2. But the entire suite from opening TVM>B+C, Voices>Humu>Voices is some of the most patient and exploratory music you will ever hear with rewarding peaks and contemplative, almost avant-garde, interludes. TVM's jam into B+C is builds from simple playfulness into rollicking triumph. the opening minutes of voices is unlike any other. On the other side of the night, you have a Shem-Ra that jams like the Allmans and newly-minted Spaga that is at turns stoic and emotional descending into the closing Helix furies. what a night! Peeps should listen to this mostly unmentioned show to get an idea of what vets may be grousing about in the present. Minor Housekeeping: the TVM should be listed as *unfinished* and the B+C should have designations on the *inverted* pieces.

Awesome show !
just finally listened to it after all these years. Never saw The Biscuits before this evenings show. Won free tix on a radio show. Second set was tearing. They were jammin out so hard I don't even think they noticed when the house lights came on cuz it was 2;05 am.( i remeber cuz I was right next to the clock) They didn't do an encore but they left thier prescense known at Toads that night. I can assure you of that!

Surprising that no one has reviewed this show yet, as it is a definite keeper. Solid all throughout, with the second set being one long highlight.
My favorite segment is the Helix -> B&C -> Hope, mostly due to the deep groove-laden Helicopters jam and what is probably the best Hope ever played. The jam goes from serene to all out metal in the span of 7 or 8 minutes.
Sound quality is well above average, with excellent separation of the 4 instruments.
A very strong show from a very strong (yet inconsistent) FT2K.
